    So, you want no additional training other than what already happens today.

    If the public wants use of force legal experts for police officers, then it will be a higher level job similar to an attorney. Perhaps, police officers could earn higher pay grades by pursing increased legal and use of force training?

    You're going to have to prove yourself more valuable if you want more money. That's how it works in the real world.

    What attorney level person is going to put themselves in the line of fire like police have to do?

    Well, wouldn't less citizens complaints, less injuries to suspects, less problems in court due to expert application of ever-changing laws be valuable? Municipal insurance rates may even drop.

    Depends on the pay. Look at pilots. They have a lot of stress, danger, and responsibility.

    Sure, just start making that happen and justify your additional expense.

    That's up to the cities. I doubt it will ever happen. That's why Chris Rock's suggestion isn't
    realistic. Besides, in reality pilots do crash and kill innocent people who placed their trust in them.

    I'm not saying that **** doesn't happen. I'm just saying it shouldn't happen as much.

    After watching the video multiple times, it doesn’t look like a business card or a piece of the wall. Even if its weapons grade plutonium, there is still no reason for the officers action. The dude was cuffed

    It really doesn't happen that much. The media and Left amplifies it, when it does.

    "This is in line with other data I highlighted in these pages two years ago—namely, a 2018 study published in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, which analyzed more than 114,000 criminal arrests made across three midsize police departments, finding that more than 99 percent of arrests were carried out without the use of physical force. In 98 percent of the cases in which those officers did use physical force, suspects “sustained no or mild injury.”

    Historical context is important, too. In 1971, New York City Police discharged their firearms 810 times, wounding 221 people and killing 93. By 1990, those numbers were down to 307, 72, and 39, respectively. In 2016, police discharged their weapons just 72 times, wounding 23, killing 9. This is real progress; but it would come as news to anyone observing the mobs that have spent the last few days hurling insults, rocks, and Molotov cocktails at exhausted and demoralized members of the NYPD.

    It looked excessively long to me. I also know that we haven't see all the evidence.
    I'd like to see the officer's body camera videos.

    I did MMA and BJJ back in the day. A choke (applied correctly) takes 4-8 seconds to render someone unconscious. We were always taught that leaving a choke on after someone passes out is deadly. Keeping a choke on for 8 mins is a definite death sentence.

    This is why I remain silent. You don’t want to hear my opinion- (and it involves both parties involved)

    "regional airline pilots in the U.S. typically starts out making an hourly rate of $20 – $50 per hour, or about $20,000-$40,000 per year, depending on the airline, type of aircraft, and the pilot’s experience level."

    That's interesting video in the first couple of pages.
    It's unfortunate for everyone.

    I’m convinced that almost everyone who thinks the cops are the problem if given the opportunity to run the job for a week would quickly go “Oh, I understand now! I didn’t know it was like this!” before quietly slipping away never to complain again.
